Happy Wednesday girlfriends! 

I hope you all are having a wonderful day so far! 

Today was a "wash your hair" type of day because 4 day hair is not cute on me. How long can you go without washing your hair? If we're being honest I can go 2 and look decent but on 3rd day hair I'm looking a bit rough and use about half a bottle of dry shampoo haha. And just to show how bad my mom brain is, I'm planning on cutting the grass later today which means I'll be sweating so therefore I should've waited to wash my hair tonight not this morning #fail 

Enough of the hair talk...I shared this cute leopard t-shirt with you guys on my WHAT'S IN MY AMAZON CART post and it came in the mail last week. And y'all I am in LOVE with it! Not only because it's in this leopard print, but because it honestly so comfy! Great quality too. Please don't judge if you see me wear it everyday! Also it'll be perfect for the Fall time! I have so many outfit ideas. 

This top is under $20. I've always seen leopard as a neutral "color". I feel like it just adds the right amount of style without being too much, ya know? I know it isn't for everyone but i'll always be a leopard print girl through and through. Are you a fan of leopard print? This could make or break our virtual friendship! haha totally kidding! No judgement here! 

I also wanted to share some other fashion favorites! Things that I have been wearing on repeat! Links to everything will be listed and again if you shop through my links THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! 

LEOPARD STARBUCKS CUP : I also have this in the "cold cup" and I use them every single day! They come in a variety of colors and you can of course customize them! 

MOM STYLE SHORTS: I have talked about these shorts a million times, so there's not much to say about them other than well they're GOOD! 

SCALLOPED ESPADRILLES: These are from Threads Boutique! Perfect height and SO DANG comfy! Don't forget you can use my code "Rosa15" for 15% off your purchase In Store or Online! I'm also linking a similar pair HERE incase your size is out of stock. 

EVERYDAY BRACELETS HERE & HERE: I've had these for a little over 2 months and they are holding up so good! These are definitely a dupe for the David Yurman bracelets! 

SNAKE PRINT SANDALS: Mine are from Target ($20) but I found these similar pair at Nordstrom Rack for $15!! All sizes are still in stock! I'm not kidding when I tell you I wear them every day! 

BASIC TANKS: I just wanted to mention these again because I think they're the perfect tank to add to your closet! You can wear them all year round, just add a leather jacket, denim jack or a cardigan! Also only $8! STEAL! 

T-SHIRT DRESS: This dress comes in several other colors, under $20! Definitely my go-to dress when running errands or would even be perfect to throw over a swimsuit!

Happy Monday y'all! 

It's been such a gloomy day in Texas! I'm currently sitting in the car while Julian takes a quick nap, its almost 4pm so looks like this mama is staying up late. Also can y'all believe my baby turned FOUR! I don't understand why time won't slow down (cue the tears). 

In the last couple of days, a couple of my followers asked me how I got to this point after having him, fitness wise. And honestly its hard. It wasn't until Jan 2018 that I finally put my big girl panties on and started. Julian was born in 2015 so it only took my 3 years to finally start haha BUT don't give up. I PROMISE you that HARDEST part is STARTING! 

Also I'm a stay at home mom, so I needed to find workouts that wouldn't take me more than an hour to complete, because dinner, laundry, cleaning, oh and of course giving your kid attention, doesn't stop. I personally don't think you need a gym to be "fit" or to exercise. All my workouts are done at home, under an hour. We're all in different paths, so I also don't have 2 hours to spend at the gym so when I do my workouts I make sure I push myself. If I can do it you can too girlfriend! 

Another thing that helped me a ton was having Julian on a routine. Nothing crazy but knowing he'd wake up at about 7:30-8:30, gives me time to schedule my workouts, and just me time. I'm all about routines. 

So with that, today I'm sharing a 15 minute HIIT workout! If you don't have 15 minutes just do 10! Some sweat is better than no sweat right? haha. I always do about 10 minutes of cardio before my workouts just to get me pumped. 

I love doing HIIT workouts because they definitely make you break a sweat! 

I hope y'all enjoy! And if y'all give this workout a go, let me know how you did! Also comment below with any other fitness posts you 'd like to see? Or any other workout posts?

Happy Wednesday! 

It has been a while since I've done a COFFEE TALK post! One of the many reasons I started my blog is because I wanted a place to share my thoughts, or how I was feeling, I guess you can say I wanted this to be some sort of diary for me. 

I'm struggling to find a title for this post because there is a lot that I want to talk about but most of it revolves around the word "WORTHLESS". If I told you guys how many times that word has been thrown at me, y'all would think I was kidding...but unfortunately I'm not kidding. 

I remember being called "worthless" at the age of 16, I was trying to figure out life, figuring out who I am, etc. When this person first called me worthless, I made up excuses for them. Telling myself, "well you shouldn't have said that" , "it's your fault", "he's absolutely right", "you should've just kept your mouth shut", and so many more things. I was in this environment for a couple of years and "worthless" was constantly thrown at me. Again I not once told myself, "hey you are not worthless, snap out of it" 

I always wondered what made a person call another such an awful & hurtful word. Like what makes you want to call another human being "worthless". Does it make you feel worth more? Does it make you feel powerful? 

I'm 25 now, and depression is something that I silently fight through everyday. I've come to realize that a HUGE trigger is being called "worthless".  When that word is directed at me, it puts me in a dark place. It takes me to the 18 year old me, who finally decided to leave that toxic environment, it takes me back to the days I would cry in my small blue room, to the days I felt helpless and alone, to the days I didn't think I'd ever see the light at the end of the tunnel, to the days I felt worthless. 

It took a lot to finally look in the mirror and not feel worthless, it took a lot to realize that I am worth so much. It takes a lot of strength to get YOURSELF out of those dark places. Those dark feelings that feel like are never going to go away. 

If today you are feeling worthless, know that you are NOT! You are worth so much, your life is worth everything. Know that you are loved, know that if you ever feel alone I am only a message away. 

Worthless, is an ugly and hurtful word. It can hurt a person more than you can imagine. 

Pray, I promise you he listens. He was there when I wanted to end it all, he was there when I lost all hope. Pray to him. 

He is the reason I am here today, he knows I am worth so much, he did give his life for me. That alone is just mind blowing to me. 


I hope you guys enjoyed this post and thank you for letting me vent to you! Thank you so much for continuing to support me blog.

Happy Monday! 

We actually had a fun filled weekend! We went out 2 nights in a row and well needless to say, this mama is exhausted! Let me just tell you drinking in your mid 20's is not the same, and the recovery takes waay longer. haha In case you guys didn't know this, I am a total light weight! I just need two margaritas and girlfriend, I am all set! Anyone else? 

But we are going to kick this week off with 5 "baby" steps to take to start your fitness/health journey! You guys know I'm all about baby steps, and I'm constantly telling y'all how important it is to start slow & steady. That's how I started and I stand 100% by this "method". 

Please feel free to leave me a comment with any questions you may have! I will do my best to answer with whatever knowledge I may have on it. If you scroll down to the bottom of this blog post, you just type your comment in the little box and then it'll ask you to enter your email address. I DO NOT use your information for anything else JUST to reply to you. 


1.) WRITE DOWN YOUR GOAL: Whether that be losing weight, toning up, or gaining weight, write it down. Also write down why you're doing it. Because you want to feel more confident, you want to have more energy, etc! I suggest maybe buying a notebook where you can write all your FITNESS & HEALTH things in. 

2.) START EXERCISING 3 DAYS A WEEK- Okay again, I'm all about slow & steady! So start off by working out 3 days a week. Your workouts don't have to be anything intense or crazy...yet. If you have never worked out maybe tone it down and start off 2 days a week. Make sure you listen to your body. 

3.) CREATE YOUR WORKOUT SCHEDULE- This is KEY! There are some weeks that I don't plan out my workout schedule and I feel the motivation go downhill real quick! I started off by doing a 5-10 minute run 3 days a week for about 2 weeks and then I started adding workouts. I highly recommend NOT skipping Monday's. For me personally if I skip Monday I just don't feel as productive. Also make sure you're scheduling your workout at a time that works BEST for you. Also take in mind, sleep will be sacrificed! haha You can check out my current workout schedule HERE 

4.) SUBSTITUTE WHERE YOU CAN- Another key step! You don't want to throw yourself into your journey and start by eating salads every day all day! Chances are you're going to give up real quick. I say this all the time...but slowly transition into healthier options. I'll give you guys a few examples. Starting off old school, choose grilled over fried, skip out on the fries, if you're a soda drinker maybe start drinking diet soda, portion your food, try veggie pasta instead of regular pasta, ground turkey instead of regular ground beef, make sure you always include a side of veggies. I feel like I could do a WHOLE post of substitution so I may start working on that. But you get the point. 

5.) DRINK YOUR WATER- I know, I know! You hear it all the time but it's true! Water is so good for you! I also know a ton of you don't like water, so maybe add some of your favorite fruit to make it taste a little better! Before I started my journey I honestly maybe had 1 bottle of water a day,  if that! Now I drink about 8-10 bottles a day, y'all know I love my lemon & strawberry water so I mix it up sometimes. 


I hope you guys enjoyed this post & found it helpful! If you did make sure you leave a comment! Thank you guys so much for stopping by & for continuing to support my blog!

Hello friends! 

Happy Wednesday! I decided to add another day to my blogging schedule! I couldn't decide between Wednesday or Sunday and I asked you guys and well Wednesday's work out best for all of us! So you'll be hearing from me 3 days a week now! Whoop whoop! 

Okay so I wasn't much of an Amazon person until I started my blog (June 25) and realized all the goodness that there is on there! haha I would occasionally browse the sight and was just eh about it. BUT GIRLFRIEND! It has become an obsession now! 

I wanted to share a WHAT'S IN MY AMAZON CART because y'all know this mama is on a budget and I buy most things one or two at a time. I thought this would be a good idea so if you guys see anything you like you can go ahead and purchase. At the end of the month I also plan on doing a roundup of my favorite Amazon finds! If you guys want to purchase through my links (THANK YOU) just click on the name of the product which most likely will be in bold and shop away! 

There's a a little bit of everything and when I purchase from Amazon, I ALWAYS read the reviews and check to see the rating! 

LEOPARD PRINT T SHIRT - You guys know I'm a leopard girl through and through! So I immediately added this cute t shirt to my cart!  And best part it's under $20! 

SCOOP NECK BODYSUIT - I wasn't into bodysuits and then one day I bought one and BAM! I'm obsessed! This one is $15 and comes in a ton of colors! These are another great staple piece because you can wear them all year round, and get so much use out of them. 

HOUSE SLIPPERS- If you guys have been following me you know that I've been stung by scorpions like THREE dang times!!! I wear sandals around the house but they are not the comfiest so I saw these cuties and knew they'd be my next purchase! 

CLEAR PLASTIC ORGANIZERS - My vanity is a mess so these are definitely a necessity! I stopped by Target and it just made more sense to get this 6 piece set for $15 than the ones at Target which were like $7 a piece. 

PERFECT PEACH RESISTANCE BANDS - These have great reviews! And you get 5 resistance bands for $15. WINNING!! 

VITAMIN E OIL - I've been using this oil for 2 months now and it has done wonders for my skin! I recently ran out and started using my Ponds moisturizer and my skin quickly broke out! I highly recommend this! 

MESH SCREEN DOOR- Another necessity! This will for sure be my next purchase. Julian LOVES to play outdoors and I want to leave the door open so I can run out to his rescue in case he comes face to face with a freaking snake (we've seen like 5 in just a couple of weeks)! But I need to keep the flies out as well, I saw Casey Holmes talk about this a few months ago so I thought I'd give it a try. 

KIDS GARDEN TOOL SET - Julian also loves to help out when we're outside so I want to get him this little set that he can use. I think these set is only about $15! 

I hope y'all enjoyed this post! Thank you so much for stopping by and for continuing to support my blog!

Happy Monday friends! 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 

I took Julian to the library this morning and he enjoyed himself soo much! And I love the love he has for books. I use to be such a bookworm, and could read a book in a couple of days but now it takes me at least a month! So crazy how things change! 


My workout schedule has been pretty consistent for the last month or so. Monday's are my ab days and I wanted to share this workout with y'all because it's so easy but your abs will be on fire! I do each exercise for 40 seconds each and with exercises 3 & 4 I do 20 seconds on each side for a total of 40 seconds. Make sure your tightening up your core and you know, slow and steady! 

Take in mind I am not an expert so if my form is incorrect feel free to let me know, like always you guys know that constructive criticism is welcome here! 

If you are a beginner you can start by doing each exercise for 30 seconds and eventually increase your time. Or if your on a tight schedule just lower the time.  

** On exercise 3-LEG HOLD- hold for at least 5 seconds and then alternate.

I hope y'all enjoy this post and if you give this workout a go, let me know how you did! 

Thank you so much for continuing to support my blog it means the world to me!

Happy Friday! 

I hope you all had a wonderful week! 

I'm currently eating my breakfast and sipping on some hot coffee! Talk about a good day! 

Okay so Tuesday I headed to College Station and stopped by my (current) favorite boutique! Katie is the owner of it and y'all she is the SWEETEST person! When I tell you she's a ray of sunshine I mean it! Threads Boutique has been open for about 3 weeks now. Everything in the store is under $70! Which is pretty insane. Y'all know I'm all about affordable style so this is right up my ally! Katie was so kind enough to give me a discount code for y'all! You can use code "Rosa15" to get 15% off your order! In store or online! 

So if you're in College Station or surrounding areas stop by the boutique and let her know I sent you! And if you're not no problem! Head to their site! 


Okay so now to the fun stuff....outfits! 

I have links to the pieces under each photo (beside outfit details), a few of them are only in store for now. 

Outfit #1: This lace sleeved tee is SO soft! I was torn between this one and the one on outfit #3! These denim shorts were a bit too big on me! But still so cute. Paper bag shorts have a been a huge hit this season! 

Oufit #2: I wish I would've bought this bodysuit because there are so many ways to style it! And it would've been perfect for Fall too! Another pair of shorts! These come in a couple of other colors! 

Outfit #3: The lace kimono & tee are not online but if you go in store try them on! They feel & fit so good! The t shirt came home with me because y'all know I love a good basic! Okay now this skirt is a MUST! It fits like a glove! The one pictured is white of course, but I bought it in black because well, I'm a mom! haha 

Oufit #4: Who doesn't love pom pom anything! Another in store find but so dang cute! 

Outfit #5: This black tank also came home with me! I feel like it makes me look somewhat Texan haha and again another basic & comfy piece! 

Outfit #6: Okay this romper is soo precious!!! Do size up though! I went with a small and I was like "Katie it doesn't fit" but she informed me that it runs small!haha Phew, I thought I was having too much pizza! lol 

Outfit #7: Saving the BEST for last! Y'all know I'm a leopard type of gal and of course this came home with me! This black dress is also such a great basic piece! 

I hope y'all enjoyed this #fittingroomdiaries post! And be sure to head to my Instagram (follow me here)  because I'm also sharing a try on with these pieces! Let me know which outfit is your favorite!
